Unlike in past seasons, the Los Angeles Clippers don't have a lot of glaring flaws. This is one of the most talented rosters in the league, directed by one of the best coaches in the league.
But every team, no matter how productive, has its weak spots. The Clippers are no exception to this, even though they've proven to be consistently dominant over the course of the season, despite some pretty important injuries.
As Kate Fagan of espnW.com explains, that's in large part because of Doc Rivers paying attention to the smaller details:
Most fans assume that if the Clips are going to avoid bowing out in the first round of the playoffs again and make a deep run, they'll need [Chris] Paul and power forward Blake Griffin to be superhero versions of themselves: more dimes, more dunks, more dominance. But what they'll really need, Rivers believes, is more trust. And the coach is steadily building it, hoping his players will see his constant tiny adjustments not as an irritation but as a path to an NBA title.
While Rivers will do his best to account for everything, here are five weaknesses opposing teams may be able to exploit in the playoffs.
